Monmouth loses to Siena. Another team that would have been ahead of us

Monmouth will make the tournament ahead of us anyways. The were under others receiving votes the last few weeks so I'd expect to see them still around 10-12

They aren't expected to get an at large. I was watching the game and the commentators said that if they don't win the MAAC they would not have enough to get an at large and would go to the NIT again. Joe Lunardi had them as a 13 seed, which isn't a spot at larges can get

Yes, they don't have a real good RPI (around #52). and they don't have the quality wins they had last year. Their only top 100 win was over Princeton. Also not a strong SOS. NIT again.

Lunardi's new bracket not only doesn't include Monmouth but they are nowhere to be found on the list of first four out or next four out.

I have not looked at RPI in a while. So, I was surprised to see that Bucknell is up to #66. Is this the highest that the Bison have been ranked this season?

While he had a great game, a key turnover by Marquis Wright in final min of regulation really hurt. I watched the final 10:00 and it was a good game.

Belmont the favorite to get out of the OVC lost. They were projected to be a 12/13 seed. So obviously we would benefit from this loss if we win the Tourney


Just watched that game, now are at least eight conference champs we would be seeded ahead of: OVC, NEC, Summit, MEAC, SWAC, Big Sky, Southland, Big West. Two more to assure a 14, six for a 13. There are ten conferences with only one team left who could be seeded ahead of us: Winthrop, Fla Gulf Coast, ETSU, Monmouth, Valpo, Vermont, Akron, Mid Tenn St, UT Arlington & Princeton. Any of these who lose helps us should we win the Patriot.

That said, one step at a time. JUST BEAT NAVY!


With Monmouth and Valpo down we are now almost assured of at worst a 14 seed. Bracket Matrix has FGCU and Winthrop behind us as well, but I am not certain about that. Still to watch: Vermont, Akron, Mid Tenn St, UT Arlington & Princeton (at least two up to four need to lose to get us on the 13 line.)

Go Bison! Beat the Engineers (can't switch).
Ray Bucknell!

East Tennessee upset UNC Greensboro in the SoCon, but don't think that affects our seeding.

Mt. St. Mary's championship game is on ESPN2 right now. MSM trailed by eight but has now taken the lead with 14 minutes left.

Nothing affects our seeding. We are the #1 seed hosting #3 Lehigh and the committee kept us close to our fan base by having us play in Lewisburg, PA.

Mount St Mary's digs back from a deficit once again to punch their ticket. Great story following their 1-11 or 1-12 nonconference start to the season.

After losing to the Bison, they were 1-11. Since then they have gone 18-4.

Their ooc schedule ranks 6th in the nation.

Great comeback for George Mason tonight over Fordham. Mason pulled off a 7-1 run at the end of regulation to send it to overtime, which they dominated.

And check out this highlight moment from Bryson Johnson
